You can generally be terminated for any or no reason, so long as not discriminatory. However, under the rights facts, there can be... Read more »
Is my employer required to retroactively pay me due to the payroll employee just not paying me that amount bc she didn't think I should get that.

You should first discuss the situation with the individual that told you that you would receive compensation at the higher rate. If they don't agree to retroactive payments, then you should contact a Nebraska employment attorney. While the email you mentioned is not a contract, you may want... Read more »

Hi, I don't see anything inherently wrong with this. However, the employer does have a duty to return you to the same or similar position when you return from FMLA. I would reach out to an employment law attorney in your state if you have any issues.

Have you looked at the Nebraska Equal Opportunities Commission website? There is information there to help you find if behavior was not legal and for you to file a formal complaint with the NEOC if you believe there was.

In at-will employment states, employees can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, as long as the reason isn't discriminatory (i.e. based on your race, sex, age, religion, disability). While your situation seems unfair, your employer's actions are not unlawful.

Not sure what your specific question is. Generally contract disputes are very fact-based scenarios, so you will likely need to go through the language in your contract with an attorney experienced with employment contracts to determine your best course of action.
I work at buffalo wild wings, and was told I would be taken off the schedule if I didn't get 40 percent of my daily guests to have or sign up for their rewards program. Even though there is nothing in the handbook, code of conduct, or company policy stating I have too?
answered on Aug 12, 2019
Companies are allowed to require workers to meet minimum performance requirements in order to meet their job duties and maintain employment. As long as these policies aren't implemented in a discriminatory manner or otherwise violate the law, they are generally allowed.
If the company policy says my state carries over PTO, do they have to abide by the state law or can they follow their own HR policy? Even if it goes against what is written in their own policy???
answered on Aug 8, 2019
If a company has a policy that is contrary to the law, the policy would likely be found as void or illegal and the law instead would apply.
I believe a similar case went before the Nebraska supreme court and Wal-mart lost.
